The Saudi Cabinet on Monday expressed its appreciation to Arab, Islamic and friendly countries and Arab and international organisations, parliaments and bodies that supported decisions and measures taken by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to fight terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, track down perpetrators of terrorist acts and agitators of seditions, prosecute them, and implement judicial rulings without discrimination for any consideration in application of the Islamic Sharia for the protection of rights, achievement of justice, maintaining security of society and deterring anyone who spreads corruption on earth.
Chaired by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the Cabinet commended the judiciary's efficiency and its independence and integrity, Saudi Press Agency, SPA, reported on Monday.
The Cabinet condemned the attacks, destruction, burning and looting at the kingdom's embassy in Tehran and consulate in Mashhad, noting that the attacks came after Iranian aggressive regime's comments which formed a blatant incitement that encouraged attacks on the missions and represented a flagrant violation of all international agreements, charters and treaties.
The Cabinet noted the position of Ministers of Foreign Affairs of Gulf Cooperation Council for Arab states, their strong condemnation of Iranian attacks, their categorical rejection of them, and holding Iranian authorities fully responsible according to their commitment to Vienna Conventions 1961 and 1963, and the international law holding countries responsible for protecting diplomatic missions.
The Cabinet thanked all sisterly and friendly countries, which announced their stand and solidarity with Saudi Arabia in its decision, and decided to recall their ambassadors and cut off diplomatic relations with the Republic of Iran.
The Cabinet reviewed the Arab League Council's reconfirmation of its condemnation of the Iranian government for interfering in the internal affairs of Arab countries, considering it as a violation of the rules of the international law and the principle of good neighbourliness, and a serious threat to regional and international security and peace.
